Hello 'Beautiful'

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
It's my turn to Host for our Trend Week at
Just Us Girls
I chose Bleach as it is a technique I haven't tried before
and I know it has been around for an age. 
I'm afraid my card didn't photograph too well.
I think the metallic shimmer made it tricky.
The beautiful Lily Stamp and Sentiment
I used here are from STAMPlorations
 Smile and Hello Coffee
I heat embossed my flower with
Lindy's Pumpkin Fiesta
and then worked on bleaching.
When that was dry I added colour with
some metallic paints. This was cut from
a Spellbinder die with SU Groovy Guava
card stock - same as my base.
I popped that onto some metallic paper
attaching some ribbon to the side.
Sentiment was inked with
SU Calypso Coral. Finished with pearls.

Hope you can pop over and see what our
November Guest Claire and my Team Mates
created for your pleasure and get time
to get out some bleach from the laundry
and play with us this week.
Look forward to seeing you in our Gallery.

Thanks for dropping in and leaving
such kind comments.

A Very Special 'THANK YOU'

Hello and Welcome to a Special Post.
Each year I make a card with Poppies 
for Remembrance Day in Australia.

Image result for remembrance day

This post is a few days early but thought it
perfect for our Anything Goes with Dies at

I kept it CAS using a background
done with predominately Red Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper.
I cut the Perky Poppy from my Memory Box Die
and attached to the background.
Added a frame and a simple Thank You
sentiment in gold.
Pop over and see more die cuts from my Team Mates
and come join us this month.

Time to Give 'Thanks'

November has come around and it is time for our 
New CUTplorations Challenge over at
Hello and Welcome to today's Post.

I started my card by smooching a background with
Lindy's Magical's in Rose Pink then stenciled
with ARTplorations Droplets with clear embossing powder.
My background for the floral stamp was sponged with
Tim's Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin,
Fired Brick and Ripe Persimmon
I then got out my Bloom Sketches and randomly
stamped again using  Ripe Persimmons in a shadow effect.
I added glossy accents to the centre of the main flower
 and while wet sprinkled with
 Stampendous Aged Copper Embossong Enamel
but did not melt it.
Added a touch of Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the other two flowers.
I added a small frame in a lighter pink then popped
to my droplet background and finally to 
SU Groovy Guava card base.
Finished with my Thanks sentiment from 
and some scattered pearls.


Pop on over and see what my Team Mates have made
for your pleasure and come join us in our Gallery.

I heat embossed the poinsettia flower several time
around one side then decided to colour my background
with Lindy's Magicals (again)
I then added some watercolour wax
in Coral Reef  for more colour on the centre leaves.
Finished with heat embossing my sentiment,
corner rounded one edge and attached to
matching coloured card base.
